The espresso bombs will dissolve into salty, chocolatey goodness into your coffee or hot water. Stirring them into coffee is for someone that likes strong coffee. If you don’t then stir them into water for weaker results.

These salted caramel bombs are so easy to make. I used a small dome mold and some instant espresso. The small dome mold is a must. The larger mold isn’t great for fitting into coffee mugs.

First, melt the chocolate wafers via the directions on the bag. For these I used a good chocolate like Ghirardelli’s and not candy melts. I just prefer better chocolate when I am drinking it the coffee.

Melting Chocolate Wafers:

Always start with the directions on the back of the bag. Each microwave is different. My half power on my microwave is not as hot so I have to microwave these at half power a little longer. Just do it in increments to get the best melted results or the chocolate could lump and burn.

Tips for Molding Chocolate:

When it comes to working with the small dome mold there is a few tips to get it right. Don’t coat twice unless you can see through to the mold. Just coat the dome with the back of a spoon. This allows it to coat more evenly. Freeze the chocolate for 10 minutes then check. See the silicone then patch those areas with chocolate and re freeze.

I always get ask how to you make them even. Look at your molds place sizes of edging together. Melt them to make sure they are flat and then this also helps them seal. Work fast when putting the espresso inside and melting to seal them together.

I use Cafe Bustelo for the instant espresso as it’s a good brand for those that like instant espresso. After the balls are sealed I then melt the salted caramel by sweet tooth fairy and drizzle it over the top.
